Eno Sarris Baseball Chat — 8/1/13

11:46
Eno Sarris: Here at noon!
11:58
Eno Sarris: Lyrics of the day, cause it’s a bloodsport, this baseball thing:

Forty-eight thousand seats bleats
And roars for my memories of you
Now that I’m fully clean
The matador is no more and is dragged from view

11:58
Comment From person hscer
What’s an Oberholtzer?
12:00
Eno Sarris: “Head Wood” in German if we go literal, but that’s kinda gross. So let’s instead talk about his arsenal: three pitches, getting almost a K per inning in the minors, great control, not great velocity, homer and BABIP issues in the minors, pitching in the AL in a homer park. I’d leave him to the AL-onlies.
12:00
Comment From person hscer
The Nationals are 11 games behind the Braves. The Marlins are 10 games behind the Nationals.
12:00
Eno Sarris: Never one to fluff my own feathers, I’ll just point out that I picked the Bravos to win the division this year.

12:00
Comment From Miketron
Thoughts on Ellsbury the rest of the way? Is he going to turn on the power for some extra free agent bucks?
12:01
Eno Sarris: He can manage five more homers over the rest of the way. .300/10/50 is going to get him paid.
12:01
Comment From SanoandMe4Eva
I have a serious crush on Miguel Sano….do you know if he is seeing anyone?
12:01
Eno Sarris: THE BASEBALL. /roastd
12:01
Eno Sarris: If you could ask Ernie Banks one question, what would it be.
12:01
Comment From bdhudson
Rangers have had 3 walkoffs in a row. I’m exhausted.
12:02
Eno Sarris: Pretty amazing.
12:02
Comment From Razor
Someone in my 10-team keeper league dropped Matt Cain. I need to find a tougher league, right?
12:02
Eno Sarris: Yeah, especially since when you get that small, it’s not a gaurantee that you need to pick up all dropped struggling stars.
12:02
Comment From Steve
Is my hanley/cespedes for his goldy or mccutchen good value for me? Especially if I have Xander waiting in the wings?
12:03
Eno Sarris: You get best player, so if it’s a shallow league, do it. The deeper the league gets, the more it stings to send two mid-rounders for a first rounder.
12:03
Comment From juan pierres mustache
Eno Sarris chat: baseball, beer, and celebrity matchmaking. (does Sano count as a celebrity?)
12:03
Eno Sarris: Ooh that would be weird.
12:03
Comment From Jim
Gallardo worth a DL stash?
12:04
Eno Sarris: This is your question for Ernie Banks? Just kidding. Yeah, I’d stash anyone with upside in an open DL spot. DL spots should always be full.
12:04
Comment From Marty
3 weeks ago I traded Cliff Lee for Liriano and goldschmidt. No question. Just wanted to toot my own horn.
12:04
Eno Sarris: Well done.
12:04
Comment From Mark
Reason you have yet to be on the Getting Blanked Podcast this year: Drew Fairservice’s racism or his OVERT racism?
12:04
Eno Sarris: Just emailed him this question.
12:05
Comment From Mable
Are the Rangers squandering the talented Profar? I think if he wasn’t going to be an everyday player, he should have spent the year in AAA. Your thoughts?
12:05
Eno Sarris: I think he probably learned enough down there, and they are kind of following the Cardinal’s plan: nobody is too good for part time play. Break em in, get em used to the bigs, get use out of them, and when a vet gets too much money from someone else, slide him in. This is a revelation for me, I thought like you did for much of the year.
12:06
Comment From Ceetar
Mets game is on. Let’s get Metsmerized! no? When is Lucas Duda coming back and do we care that he can’t field a lick compared to Eric Young Jr (who can’t really hit a lick compared to Duda?)
12:06
Eno Sarris: If only you could smush them together! There’s a place for Duda on that field. Shoulda been right after a Byrd trade, though.
12:07
Comment From JT
Can I cut ties with Erasmo? I want to believe but…
12:07
Eno Sarris: I’m holding. The problem so far has been control/command, and that’s not really his problem. Oh, and homers — he could have given up more homers if Endy Chavez hadn’t Endy Chavez/d.
12:08
Comment From JT
Drop K-Rod for Bud Norris or some other useful SP?
12:08
Eno Sarris: Yes. Not into Bud Norris in Baltimore.
12:08
Comment From Beano
ROS Kennedy or Peavey?
12:08
Eno Sarris: Peavy, but Kennedy is ownable in all leagues.
12:09
Comment From Dr. Met
How long does Grandy need to get it going assuming Friday activation? Does he hit 15 hrs ROS and slash 240/330/500?
12:09
Eno Sarris: I’ll take 10+ and the slash line looks okay. Gotta be some risk to his power given the injuries.
12:09
Comment From Bruce
What tier SP should I target if I offer Rizzo in a keeper, Im desperate for pitching help. And is it even worth it for 9-10 starts?
12:11
Eno Sarris: That could be 60 innings. Do some math — if you get closer to a k per inning vs 7 per nine, you could gain a few Ks. Add them to your standings. Do you gain points? Also, Rizzo value diff in each league and it really just depends on the pitchers that the non-contenders have that you might want.
12:11
Comment From Marty
Eno, have you had 2 Roads Double IPA? It’s pretty amazing…and hoppy.
12:11
Eno Sarris: Where’s it from?
12:11
Comment From Jim
If the Red Sox play in the AL wild card game, their starting 3b is…
12:11
Eno Sarris: Middlebrooks. Although, I wouldn’t count out a Michael Young trade in August still.
12:12
Comment From Reddickulous
My Yadi went down in a shallow 9team league. Best waiver options appear to be Martin and Castro. Their stats look eerily similar. What would you look at to determine who’s gonna be better for the next month I’ll need him? Who do you like?
12:12
Eno Sarris: I think I’d take Castro. I know Martin has the steals but eh.
12:12
Comment From LarryA
Who would have more trade value for the Jays, Lawrie or Rasmus?
12:12
Eno Sarris: Lawrie more years of control, so more value imo.
12:13
Comment From Bruce
O/U 2 saves ROS for Sergio Santos?
12:13
Eno Sarris: I read this as Romo at first hah. I think under. I like him, but Delabar and his immaculate inning have to have moved in front of him.
12:13

Comment From bdhudson
I have “I love rock and roll” by Madonna stuck in my head. Kill me. Seriously, kill me.
12:14
Eno Sarris: Crazy interlude.
12:14
Comment From jeff
Is it safe to drop Albert now, or should we be stashing and crossing our fingers?
12:14
Eno Sarris: I dropped him where he was expensive in ottoneu and I was in contention. Keeping him in a place where I have room.
12:14
Comment From bdhudson
Frieri. Panic. Help.
12:15
Eno Sarris: The walks were a problem. And De La Rosa has velocity and better control and ground balls. But it is a little weird that he throws his 90 mph cutter more than his 95 mph four seamer. I’m not sure Frieri loses his job.
12:15
Comment From person hscer
Giavotella/Getz for Oberholtzer, who says no
12:15
Eno Sarris: Everybody.
12:15
Comment From James
how good can XBOX (Xander Bogaerts) be in a few years? are we looking at a hanley-type hitter with half the hanley speed? how much higher is is value in fantasy if he stays at SS rather than moving to 3B?
12:16
Eno Sarris: The batting average is the only question, and it makes him much more valuable at SS in that case. less speed than hanley too, but interesting in the same way.
12:16
Comment From Swing and a Miss Puiggy
this penetration of Scullpin into the greater Northeast will most assuredly lead to my beer consumption quota going way up
12:16
Eno Sarris: Drink it for IPA day today.
12:16
Comment From Steve
Is Wainwright a good sell high candidate? The guy is 31, gotta be heading for regression right?
12:17
Eno Sarris: Fresh ligament, great pitcher.
12:17
Comment From Fred G Sanford
Do you see any impact arms getting a call up in Aug/Sept?
12:17
Eno Sarris: Danny Salazar?
12:17
Comment From John
I’m rapidly approaching my 1450 innings limit, and need to dump of my pitchers. Who?! Scherzer, Harvey, Sale, Fernandez, Shark, Garza, Bumgarner
12:18
Eno Sarris: Fernandez won’t get you much and is probably a dropper soon when he hits IP limit. I’d shop Scherzer or Sale just because they more injury risk than Harvey, pitch in AL, and would have great trade value.
12:18
Comment From LarryA
I have a Stone RuinTen in my fridge, but Im too scared to try it. Have you tried it?
12:18
Eno Sarris: I have no idea why I have not found this beer yet. Don’t be scared.
12:18
Comment From Razor
I love the ballpark reviews on Beergraphs- keep them coming! Real helpful when visiting a new park.
12:18
Eno Sarris: Hopefully we can get those into an app at some point.
12:18
Comment From Swing and a Miss Puiggy
Would Ian Kennedy be a better 5×5 bet now that he’s in SD than the following: Quintana, Wei-Yin Chen, Brandon Beachy?
12:19
Eno Sarris: I would take him over Quintana, who I think is risky in that park and won’t get you wins anyway. Or Chen.
12:19
Comment From bdhudson
Why is everybody mad at the Pirates for not overpaying for a mediocre outfielder in a weak trade market?
12:19
Eno Sarris: Cause some writer trashed them for it. I’m more mad that they didn’t get the Stanton deal done, that would have been crazy.
12:20
Comment From Maxamuz
I may be a few minutes late Eno, I’m watching a video of a woman holding a baby who then proceeds to start a brawl at a Chuck E Cheese.
12:20
Comment From Miketron
Had my annual review today, no mention of my Fangraphs addiction so I guess I’m in the clear for another year…
12:20
Comment From Nelson Liriano
Robert Andino was the biggest-named infielder traded yesterday.
12:20
Eno Sarris: well done.
12:20
Comment From TWTW
Trade Archie Bradley for Yelich in a dynasty?
12:21
Eno Sarris: I think I’d take the position player in the bigs over the minor league pitcher, yes.
12:21
Comment From zach
Rosario or McCann ROS?
12:22
Eno Sarris: I like what McCann is doing. Always has more BA upside.
12:22
Comment From Dr. Met
With the Rockies crumbling and Fowler having horrible home/road splits, what do you gather is a reasonable return in a dynasty league for him? He’s an extra piece once Grandy returns.
12:22
Eno Sarris: Trade him for a pitcher? These are hard for me, come with names off the rebuilding teams rosters, that’s easier for me and more constructive.
12:23
Comment From Naive Steve
Cespedes has generally sucked this year. Given that we have only one prior season of MLB ball by which to judge him, is it possible that he is just a low avg home run guy but not a top 20 OF?
12:23
Eno Sarris: Low average home run guy with speed. Probably keeps him in the back end of the top 20. But yeah, last year’s swinging strike rate was probably prescient.
12:23
Comment From Bruce
Are we allowed to second guess the Rays for waitng so long to bring up Myers?
12:24
Eno Sarris: Well, the Ks were something he had to work on. And now he’s K’ing less in the bigs than he did in the upper minors, which is strange. Also, wait for some BABIP regression before we know his true talent. Obviously good player for them, but the extra year of control is very important to that team.
12:24
Comment From KJ
Which trade do you think has been “best” this deadline? i.e. balanced for teams involved
12:25
Eno Sarris: The White Sox Boston Tigers trade ended up where everyone got a good piece, and since prognostications are all over the place, it might be the most even. I think the Tigers did best, because I don’t see all this power projection for Garcia, but it was a great trade.
12:25
Comment From Just a friend
Alt-J! Who would you rather keep (5×5, shallow keeper league) Beltre or Machado?
12:26
Eno Sarris: There you go. AND he likes triangles. Beltre is going to start missing some time, but I like him better next year, and that’s all that matters. Especially since you can probably get something nice for Machado from a rebuilder.
12:27
Comment From Bird
What do you expect next year from Sonny Gray?
12:27
Eno Sarris: Straily type use, with slightly better results? Then again, Beane could trade Anderson or Milone, that’s his MO.
12:27
Comment From Bird
Do you think Teheran reached his ceiling this year or can he continue to improve?
12:28
Eno Sarris: I think he’s a little over his head right now, but I could see him improving to ‘deserve’ his results a little more.
12:28
Comment From Keeper? I hardly know her
Do you think that hitters with strong platoon splits are undervalued. After seeing McClouth this year I’m wondering why more teams don’t look for cheaper players like him
12:29
Eno Sarris: In real life, for sure, although it can cause some issues late in games, and roster management issues. Those roster management issues are the reason they are iffy in shallow bench leagues. Instead of having some upside on your bench, you’re stuck using two players to man one position. That’s a downside in real life too.
12:29
Comment From Nitz
Thoughts on Porcello, Kluber, and Quintana? What’s their true talent?
12:29
Eno Sarris: I’ll take Kluber. I like what Porcello told me about his curve ball, and it could iron out his split problem, but the fact that it’s gone in and out makes me a bit nervous.
12:30
Comment From Pork Sale
Who plays SS for the Cardinals opening day 2014? Is Wong an absolute no?
12:30
Eno Sarris: I don’t think they care too much about getting offense from their shortstop. Probably just one of their in-house guys again.
12:30
Comment From JT
what’s your favorite midwestern beer? StL/KC area mainly
12:31
Eno Sarris: Boulevard has really been impressing me. Their Love Child is a great mild sour. Their Saison Bretta is awesome. Good stuff all around.
12:31
Comment From Brian S
Which owner of a “Top 12” catcher is most frustrated and would be most likely to accept Joe Mauer in a trade?
12:31
Eno Sarris: Sal perez?
12:31
Comment From Dead McCann Dance
for BDHudson, replace your version of I Love Rock N Roll with this one, you should be much happier http://youtu.be/veb_3IWtiJM
12:31
Comment From Marty
Any value out of THE BEARD ROS?
12:31
Eno Sarris: Na
12:31
Comment From bdhudson
I think ‘who says no?’ is a stupid phrase.
12:32
Eno Sarris: Who hangs up is worse. Because the person who heard no probably the first to hang up.
12:32
Comment From Dexter
What do I do w/Gregg, now? My roster’s jammed; I do own Strop.
12:32
Eno Sarris: You can drop Strop, but I do think Gregg is an August trade candidate.
12:32
Comment From JEB
What ever happened to Grady Sizemore…?
12:32
Eno Sarris: He broke.
12:32
Comment From Mable
Thoughts on an Aramis return to a huge 2nd half per the last 4 years?
12:33
Eno Sarris: The older you get, the less likely your body cooperates.
12:33
Comment From KJ
Big Eye > Sculpin. Just saying
12:33
Eno Sarris: There are people who agree. I’m not one.
12:33
Comment From JAL
Hey Eno. Can I start CC tomorrow at San Diego? I am a Yankee fan and love CC but I am in a tight era/whip race…Thanks.
12:33
Eno Sarris: yes.
12:33
Eno Sarris: One thing though: day games in SD are significantly different than night games. I’m assuming night game.
12:33
Comment From Miketron
Beachy or Cashner ROS?
12:33
Eno Sarris: Cash. Too many “ifs” with Beachy that Cash has overcome.
12:34
Comment From Dan
Spring House Robot Surf Factory Pineapple Pale Ale. Was skeptical, but really enjoyed it. Worth a shot if you can get it.
12:34
Eno Sarris: Weird. I have a pineapple saison on the way to my house.
12:34
Comment From bdhudson
Cashner’s slider velocity has been slowly increasing. Do you think he can build strength this year and get some of that power back next year? Or am I just too in love with Andrew Cashner? That seems possible.
12:34
Eno Sarris: That’s interesting! I’ll take a look. I thought maybe he’d just let that pitch go to save his arm.
12:35
Comment From my sox r better than your sox
How much am I hurting my team in a 12 team 6×6 roto league (no keepers) by rostering Michael Pineda and George Springer. I’m in the middle of the pack and while i do not want to waste a roster place – our waiver wire is ravenous.
12:36
Eno Sarris: I’d drop Springer. A 30% strikeout rate in the minors does not scream “he’s going to debut on fire” while Pineda is at least King everyone in minors.
12:36
Comment From Pork Sale
Wait. Is today really IPA day?
12:36
Eno Sarris: Yup. Just another reason to
12:36
Comment From Steve
RuinTen = beergasm
12:36
Eno Sarris: thanks for finishing my sentence.
12:36
Comment From Marty
Who gets most SAVES for the Ms ROS?
12:37
Eno Sarris: Wilhelmsen. Farquhar is next in line though.
12:37
Comment From Kankles
Are you buying Henderson Alvarez’ increased GB rate and a better fielding Miami infield ROS
12:37
Eno Sarris: Alvarez is so interesting. 96 with fastball, just doesn’t have enough bendy stuff. No Ks at all. He should try a knuckle curve or a split finger. Would change his life.
12:37
Eno Sarris: But yeah, right now, he’s a back end deeper league play based on better infield D, NL, GBs.
12:38
Comment From Meano Eno
ENO! I missed the first 20 minutes, favorite triangle?
12:38
Eno Sarris: Someone pointed out the triangle between short, third and LF. That’s a fun one for ducksnorts.
12:38
Comment From Pork Sale
Who has lost more luster this year, Taveras or Profar? And I’m not saying its a massive amount, just wondering.
12:39
Eno Sarris: Might be Taveras. At least Profar is up and looks to be pushing for a role. Taveras got hurt, and now they talking Adams at first base next year, Craig in OF and Taveras hoping they get tired of Jay.
12:39
Comment From Chris
If you had to trade one of Liriano or Gio which one and why?
12:39
Eno Sarris: Liriano, just cause of career track record. Just have to think the walks will be a problem again, even as much as I like him.
12:39
Comment From Guest
Any news on Grilli cheese?
12:39
Eno Sarris: HE HAS VOWED TO RETURN.

Suspensions coming yet today do you think?
12:40
Eno Sarris: Tired of it.

Eno, you’re in SF right? LET’S BEER.
12:41

Wait a baby started a brawl at Chuck E. Cheese? That’s the best promotional ad they’ve had in forever!
12:41
Comment From Rubby of the Rose
Wil Myers is amazing. Isn’t Wil Myers amazing?
12:41
Eno Sarris: Love that he’s stealing bases actually. And the K rate is surprising.
12:42
Comment From Keeper? I hardly know her
Castro or Lucroy ROS?
12:42
Eno Sarris: lucroy by a nose
12:43
Comment From RotoLando
Do you like Alex Wood for the rest of the season?
12:43
Eno Sarris: I don’t think he has the innings to last the whole season. Hasn’t built them up yet.
12:43
Comment From Maxamuz
Does GIO get suspended?
12:43
Eno Sarris: So far the rumors have been right, no? And the rumor was that he got legal supplements from them.
12:43
Comment From Kevin
Rebuilding for next year, was offered Pujols and Yaider for my Rosario and Verlander. Keep 5, I’ll be keeping McCutchen, Goldy, Beltre definitely. Maybe keep Pujols/Yadier, also have Kemp to consider. Thoughts on selling on Verlander for 2 injured players? Normally wouldn’t, but the rebuild makes it more doable.
12:44
Eno Sarris: Nah. Pujols redundant in your keeper list, and Yadier is okay as fifth keeper, but Pujolls not useful. Be more likely to say yes with Yadier and jose Fernandez or the like. Shelby Miller.
12:44

Rockos Modern Life – a kids tv show in the 90s. He works for a sex phone line.

12:44
Comment From Mac
Is Chris Archer the Rays second best pitcher now? Been pretty good and he throws hard. Seems like he’s a future ace.
12:45
Eno Sarris: Wonder about the changeup a bit still.
12:45
Comment From Rubby of the Rose
How do I eat a burger without ending up with no more bun to eat the last 1/4 of the burger?
12:45
Eno Sarris: Eat around the burger.
12:45
Comment From Steve
Keeper league – would you trade Latos, Heyward, Aaron Hill for Stanton? All appx the same price to keep next year.
12:46
Eno Sarris: I would if I was rebuilding, but if I was competitive, I’d probably need an SP and 2B.
12:46
Comment From my sox r better than your sox
Will the trading of Justin Maxwell clear enough room for a George Springer call up?
12:46
Eno Sarris: Or for Grossman to play more. Could be Springer, yes.
12:46
Comment From Jeff
Would you rather have Rubby or Greg Holland in a dynasty for now and future
12:46
Eno Sarris: Great question, and again I fall back on current status. Rather have Holland if I’m going for it. Rather have Rubby if not competing.
12:46
Comment From Marty
Norris v. LHB and in Camden = Danger Zone, yes?
12:46
Eno Sarris: Very much so.
12:46
Comment From Maxamuz
Lucas Duda News – Lucas “The Main Event” Duda (intercostal) went 0-for-2 with a walk Wednesday in his first rehab game with the GCL Mets. Duda also played five innings in left field. He figures to play a few more games in the minors, but should be back with the Mets by the end of the month.
12:47
Comment From Life of PieTraynor
Fill in the blank: Neal Huntington is among the top __ GMs in mlb.
12:47
Eno Sarris: Ten. Maybe five. I really like how he’s kept a toe in the water every trade deadline but made sure the team still had its core.
12:47
Comment From Ronald McDonaldson
How do you pronounce McClouth? McClooth or McKlowth?
12:47
Eno Sarris: McKlowth, but of course that means it’s McClooth.
12:47
Comment From jesse
after this year, where do you see Braun getting drafted next in redraft leagues, and will it be too high or too low
12:48
Eno Sarris: Anything beyond third round is too low. I think a conservative estimate of non-juice Braun is still .280+/25/10 or so.
12:48
Comment From Rubby of the Rose
Who should I keep out of: Corbin, Beachy, Sonny Gray, Salazar, Biddle, Fister, Syndergaard, Cosart, Heaney… Definitely keeping Matt Harvey, Scherzer. I’d like to keep maybe 5 or 6 total pitchers.
12:49
Eno Sarris: Corbin, Fister, Harvey Scherzer. Tha’ts four. Salazar might be tasty enough to keep even without much more info. Then you wait to see more info on Beachy vs Biddle vs Syndergaard.
12:49
Comment From Xander Mania
When do you think Xander is called up? That they are still giving him starts at SS (last night) is troubling to me. I need him now.
12:49
Eno Sarris: September.
12:49
Comment From Bart
Drop Brandon Belt and pick up Brett Pill?
12:50
Eno Sarris: No. Pill is 29. I don’t think this is really a change at the position.
12:50

Gotta try Urban chestnut in Stl
12:50
Comment From Kenley Rae Jansen
Corbin or Pineda for 2014?
12:50
Eno Sarris: corbin. Pineda still doesn’t have third pitch, right?
12:50
Comment From smp1354
10 team, keep 15 with only 3 bench spots. I love the guy, but should I be dropping Salvador Perez? In a position to win this year and have Russell Martin with Salvy on the bench, but could really use that spot to stream pitchers.
12:51
Eno Sarris: Sure. He’s batting average only, which is problematic at catcher. They have a .285 BABIP as a group, and he hurt his knee and is striking out more.
12:51
Comment From Kenley Rae Jansen
are you believing in Justin Masterson yet?
12:51
Eno Sarris: Definitely not for next year.
12:51
Comment From Alex
I’ve got a bit of a roster crunch in a dynasty. Would you drop Neil Walker, Melky, or EY Jr?
12:51
Eno Sarris: Melky.
12:51
Comment From MarinerDan
Chatwood ROS? Will he provide mixed league value?
12:52
Eno Sarris: I’m not buying. I mean the grounders are nice and all. Not in mixed leagues.

If Ervin Santana was traded, would he have commanded a bigger return than Peavy?

Comment From Mark
You should ask Hunter Pence about diet. He is one of the only athletes (in the major N. A. sports) who subscribes to the “Paleo Diet”.
12:52
Eno Sarris: Is true. I might have to work around baseball topics and surprise him with questions anyway, so starting with diet might be fun.
12:53
Comment From zack
Is AROD history’s greatest monster?
12:53
Eno Sarris: LOL. I’m actually kind of rooting for a successful suit, because there’s something about this Biogenesis stuff that feels draconian.
12:53
Comment From MarinerDan
Huston Street is back to being Huston Street now, right? His last month has been fabulous (k’s returning, no runs, etc.).
12:54
Eno Sarris: Actually the velocity is up a tick and the swinging strikes are coming back. Is true. I picked him up a couple times on trade deadline day.
12:54
Comment From Goat
Eno- how you doing? Actually got a non-fantasy question today, hope that is OK! Is there any evidence that batters hit less well when there is a guy on 1st trying to steal? Would think it could be a bit of a distraction…
12:54
Eno Sarris: Haven’t seen this tested.
12:54
Comment From Gila Monster
They have Goose Island at Fenway now!
12:55
Eno Sarris: GI signed with InBev I think. And of their widely available beers, only Matilda moves the needle much with me, although 312 is probably better than any big beer at a normal park, so congrats!
12:55
Comment From Bart
Sale for CC and Yelich a fair trade in a keeper league?
12:56
Eno Sarris: It’s okay. Mostly because there’s a lot of risk in that recoil in Sale’s delivery. But if it’s dynasty, Sale stresses his below, not his shoulder iMO, and that’s just a year off, which may not be such a huge deal.
12:56
Comment From Des
Should I drop Headley and let Prado play 3B for my team the rest of the year? Would stash Bogaerts with dropping Headley as well. Could keep Boga for 3 years. I need this!
12:57
Eno Sarris: I’d drop someone, but I like Headley. Nobody else? Prado better at MI spot.
12:57
Comment From Johnny Two Times
What do you think about Beachy next year? Will he be able to return to what he once was?
12:57
Eno Sarris: 2011 may not happen again but 2012 yes.
12:57
Comment From Bird
Chance Alex Wood sticks in the rotation next year? Sexy K rate but ive read he could be headed for the bullpen
12:58
Eno Sarris: They’ll give him a chance. And I think the bullpen risk is mostly because his delivery is so crazy people assume he’ll be hurt. See: Sale, Chris.
12:58
Comment From Fish
Eno / Eno’s Entourage: You all were very helpful with providing beer recs on my NYC trip. Start preparing some suggestions for San Francisco, I’m headed there next.

This lifetime ban thing for A-Rod. Would it be like a Pete Rose ban, or “just” an infinity game suspension?

12:59
Comment From Ruki Motomiya
What rumored trade would you have mostl iked to have seen done?

Dear Dr. Eno, I’m having mixed feelings about my relationship with AJ Griffin — what with the hair, the glasses, the 1.11 WHIP, sub 2 BB/9, and my affection for his uncle Charlie (http://cdn.fangraphs.com/not/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Griffin-CU.gif). Can I forgive him for hurting me with the long ball?
1:03
Eno Sarris: Yes, especially since you know you can start him 60-75% of the time without worrying.
1:04

Nick Franklin or Anthony Rendon ROS?
1:04
Eno Sarris: Franklin
1:04
Comment From juan pierres mustache
wait there are people who complain about having too much burger? Too much bun is a significantly worse and more pressing issue.
1:04
Eno Sarris: Actually eating around it works for both issues. Because you push the burger into the remaining bun with your bites.

Yapple dapple Appel. What level do you see him starting at next year and how many games do you put the o/u at for MLB starts?
1:06
Eno Sarris: Doesn’t rhyme that way actually. Double A, makes bigs late in season. five plus starts.
1:06
Comment From TWTW
Third round? Wow. If a 2014 redraft was being done now, I’d take him 3rd behind Trout and Miggy.
1:07
Eno Sarris: Everyone is going to subtract numbers because of juice and look at last year’s numbers. Even just on numbers, the fact that he’s running less pushes him down into the turn for me, at least. By the third round I wouldn’t hesitate.
1:08
Comment From Goat
What are your thoughts on Sandoval RoS- is there an argument he’s better than Rizzo at 1B/3B given the lineup he hits in? Without Soriano, the Cubs ex-Rizzo are Miamiesque…
1:08
Eno Sarris: Yeah I guess you could go with Pablo over him. But Pablo is a shutdown risk because of injury.
1:08
Comment From Kenley Rae Jansen
Rank as Keeper options – Jose Fernandez $11, Corbin $1, Pineda $1, Archer $1

Ryan Raburn just hit a HR in the Indians/Chicago game. He’s been worth 2.0 WAR in 61 games without a massively inflated BABIP. Is it safe to say he is back to beign a useful player?

Eno Sarris: vs lefties
1:10
Comment From Kevin
Oswaldo Arcia or Josh Reddick? Keeper league, playing for next year.

Who lost (won?) the Pineda-Montero trade?
1:12
Eno Sarris: Might still be the Yankees. Surprising to me.
1:13
Comment From juan pierres mustache
far as i’m concerned, the worst part of the whole biogenesis thing is the fact that Selig has learned that he can basically suspend people for however long he wants as long as he threatens a longer suspension first and then “settles”. the MLBPA will even take his side!
1:13
Eno Sarris: Do not like this bit.
1:13
Comment From Cole
I am wondering what tier Brad Miller will rank among shortstops next year? He is still on the wire in my keeper league but I only have one waiver move remaining.
1:13
Eno Sarris: Probably not in the top 12.
1:13
Comment From Guest
Losing Everth to Biogenesis. What are your thoughts on Villar?
1:14
Eno Sarris: So many Ks, but if you want steals and you in a deep league…
1:14
Comment From Fish
Wouldn’t you have a bigger hole to hit it through with a guy trying to steal? Especially if he actually runs, that puts two guys out of position. Unless you hit it right at a bag.
1:14
Comment From Ruki Motomiya
Isn’t the theory the opposite: Pitchers have to worry about the guy on 1st stealing so the batter is slightly better?
1:14
Eno Sarris: My bet is no effect because of all these effects cancelling out.
1:14
Comment From TWTW
Sale’s velo is up this year and the Sox have a terrific medical staff. Feels like people are greatly overstating the risk he breaks down.
1:14
Eno Sarris: Yeah but then you watch him pitch.

Comment From RotoLando
Do you think MLB is trying to give The Yankees a way out of the hideous A-Rod contract by throwing down the lifetime ban?

Comment From Maxamuz
Clemens was in Boston recently and stopped by Red Sox booth and told a story of when he pitched his 1st 20K game. It was a good story. He was late to park, jumped out of car, cop came up, said , arnet you..? Yes…took him to park. Threw 30 warmups, all balls. Hit first batter in the head, then went on to strike out 20 people.
1:16
Comment From Ernesto
Chris Johnson, overachieving or underrated?
1:17
Eno Sarris: You know what’s weird. He has legit oppo power. That’s the recipe for high BABIPs. .340+ career BABIP. So maybe he can do that, which will pump his BA up, and he has some homer power… it’s just that in real life, he doesn’t walk, defense suspect, strikes out a bit much. Really interesting player that I poo-pooed too much, maybe.
1:17
Comment From Guest
Heyward or Austin Jackson in 2014?
1:17
Eno Sarris: Hey. Ward.
1:18
Comment From Maxamuz
I think someone in my league doesn’t know Everth will be suspended and just sent me a deal – Gio/Everth (mine) for (his) Rios/D. Murphy.
1:18
Eno Sarris: Could be betting against it. Don’t feel bad about taking it. I felt bad about taking Ichiro/Blanton for Colon in a dynasty because I was sure, after Braun thing, that they were all screwed. Now it looks like Colon won’t get got a second time and I feel stupid.
1:19
Eno Sarris: Incidentally, I hate PEDs more for the suspensions and what they do to my fantasy baseball teams then what they do in real life, because I have no idea what they do in real life.
1:19

as someone who owns Stanton in a dynasty, would much prefer he be traded to Boston or Texas than Pitt because of the park

Holding Melancon and Ziegler in a blood – for – saves league. Deal them to the vultures or hold and try to add one more closer to the mix?

1:22
Comment From Truth
What types of things typically cause unusually low LOB% for pitchers? I guess trouble pitching out of the stretch is the obvious one but I’m looking for more statistical stuff.

1:26
Comment From Zach
My friend and I were having a debate…who is the better pure hitter- Miggy or Joey Votto? I chose Votto but I think a lot of people would disagree with me. Votto is the guy I’d want up with the bases loaded and two outs down by 1 in the ninth
1:26
Eno Sarris: Actually might rather have Miggy there because he’s more likely to end the game with a hit. Votto I want over the course of a season because his approach makes me feel tingly inside.

So I tweeted this yesterday but Mets radio broadcast went on a tangent of how WAR, spreadsheets and Big Bang Theory relate vs. old school stopwatch fogies who stick their head in the sand against anything mathmatical. Thought it was funny to hear them say that WAR is trustworthy due to supernerds crunching those numbers for us.

Couldn’t MLB allow injured players to use some PEDs through a monitored program? There is a legit medical reason, it helps get the best “product” on the field, and shouldn’t affect on field performance.
1:33

Rebuilding for next year, was offered Pujols and Yaider for my Rosario and Verlander. Keep 5, I’ll be keeping McCutchen, Goldy, Beltre definitely. Maybe keep Pujols/Yadier, also have Kemp to consider. Thoughts on selling on Verlander for 2 injured players? Normally wouldn’t, but the rebuild makes it more doable.

I would do it. Risk on both sides of the coin but more upside with the return.
